Amber with a good head, fruity aroma, fruity and slightly hoppy taste, not at all like the other pumpkin beers I have tried, this one was quite good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. Pours a deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is toffee, bread, slight citrus. Taste is malty, bready, very slight toffee, bit of a weird tang I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at home in Blaendulais as ’Wychwood Pumpking’, 3.8%, BB Sep 2016. Aroma is buttermints, toffee, touch soapy with some stewed orange. Mostly sweet and toffee-ish. Body is medium, rounded but foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet malts, sugar syrups, boiled sweets, metallic finish, touch of spice. Very sweet and simple. Slow drinking for the ABV because of the sweetness. It’s not great by any means, but it’s also not as bad as I was expecting. An OK Halloween beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
3.8% from Trinkgut in Wuppertal. Smooth spicy beginning. Malty dry body, full and round with nice fruity spices in the background. Not real pumpkin tasteable, but fruity-sweetish in the background, nice spices and an earthy herbal bitterness in the end. Nice stuff!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, slight toffee, some red berries, subtle spice and peppery hops, quite artificial. Taste of caramel, red berries, a little pumpkin, subtle spice, fruity malt, some yeast and slight peppery hops. Light bodied, moderate carbonation but a watery texture. A short and malty, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Not really a pumpkin beer but I wasn’t expecting a lot. Decent spice but artificial and thin.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Morrisons (£1):
A pretty disappointing beer despite the beer starting okay with a nice enough looking body & an okay smell; it was still better than the bottle of Forest Fruits from the brewery I tried some time back but only just. It seemed weak & uninteresting with too much bitterness; the only plus was that it was on special & I didn’t pay full price.

Clear copper color with small off white foam. Malty aroma with small hint of hops, not very strong though. Taste on the watery side with bitter aftertaste that does not last. Has bit of hops on taste too.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Aldi. (89p)
Pours ruby red with a 2 finger off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, spices...Taste of initial sweet malts, caramel, toffee, then some spices, dark fruits, berries and then finally a slightly peppery yet synthetic faint pumpkin taste. Not the best Pumpkin Ale at all. Not great but not bad for 89p!
